Venice, Italy


WAKING UP IN VENICE


Part 3 of our 24 hours in Venice starts at 6:55 AM (not quite as early as last year's 3:30 AM start to the day!).  I kind of wanted to get up at 4 am but with a 13-year-old in tow, don't think that would have made for a pleasant morning. We're out the door at 7 am and walk to the nearest vaporetto stop to grab the 4.1 to Murano.

MURANO


A 20-minute ride on a vaporetto brings us to Murano (Colonna vaporetto stop). It's early. There's no one up and about. Which is perfect. We're not in Murano for long, just enough to stroll along the Rio dei Vetrai via the canals two streets - Fondamenta dei Vetrai and Fondamenta Manin. Murano's claim to fame is its famous Murano glass-making artisans and factory, which is why you'll find every single store selling the stuff, plus Murano glass displays everywhere you look. Our quick walk down the canal and across the island to Murano Faro (lighthouse) takes about 20 minutes and we're just in time for the next vaporetto to take us to Burano

BURANO


From Murano to Burano, the vaporetto ride takes about 30 minutes. I'm telling the child if she thought Venice was "so tumblr", just wait til you set eyes on colourful Burano. Sure enough, it was her selfie heaven. We're not in Burano all that long either (about half an hour in total), but as you can see, it's enough time to walk and get lost on this tiny island. A true feast for the eyes, I can't get over how perfectly pretty everything is here. (See last year's Burano post here for a bit more info).
